    Busy, busy, busy...

    I really miss how easy the site was to use before our last upgrade. Its been a couple of years, and I have just recently figured out how to start using the site again. I've been having a lot if trouble with my memory, so it's hard for me to learn new things . I really miss everyone, so I'm trying to get started again.
  2. Thanks Kappy! Since this is my favorite dressing, I'll try it tomorrow. On the CHF diet anything to cut sodium is important.

    Using Desiccants

    I've seen people use the cut coffee filters or use a cupcake liner. I think it would be a good idea to do both. I've read a lot on the subject, but I still like to get info from someone who has actually tried it. I'm with you, I don't want to ruin a machine that I waited so long to get.

    Using Desiccants

    I've heard a lot of people say they don't use their vacume sealer on jars with powdery stuff. Would sealing stuff like garlic powder be a good thing to do using the canister? Seems like having your flat and ring both on the jar would keep your sealer from sucking powder up in your machine?

    Using Desiccants

    @ Jeepers- So you don't have to use new flats when you seal your jars like this? Isn't it funny that I just unpacked the box with my hand held sealer in it yesterday! I hope it still works. I have plenty of 4 oz.jelly jars. My silica jell pacs came in a couple of days ago so I will try using them in my jars that already have tight fitting lids. Thanks Sarah, I made sure they were food grade.
  9. I got mine from snapshotmiki also. Very pretty! I'm so glad you joined us this year Miki!!

    Using Desiccants

    Sarah, I have always used loose rice in my salt shaker, but the holes in the shaker top are small sincethe salt is so fine. A lot of my spices are bigger pieces with bigger holes in the shaker top and I'm thinking the rice grains might come through. If not for that, rice would be the simplest solution.

    This is the best price I have found so far. http://www.specialtybottle.com/glass-jars/spice-herb/4oz-herb4w Maybe Old Time Pottery would be cheaper.
  12. Since moving about 2 blocks from the beach, I've been having a terrible time keeping my spices from turning hard. I thought maybe adding a silica jell pac to the bottle would keep them dry. I thought about changing the spices with the flip tops to screw on lids might help too. Anyone know what size packet to use? I have some 1 gram pacs, but they look awful small.

    Thanks Cat and Jeepers! It was easy to figure out with instructions. Hi Mt_Rider. I've been sick a lot the past year, so I missed a lot, but I'm trying to catch up now. Missed all of you...

    Jeepers, is it hard to delete books from the Kindle? I've been trying to figure it out for a while.
